Styled Shoot with Danielle Grasley Makeup | Halifax Wedding Photographer

Danielle Grasley is one of my favourite double threat (hair AND makeup) artists here in Nova Scotia. You’ve probably seen her mentioned on my Instagram or in previous posts - we’ve worked together a lot! When she asked me to come on board for a shoot to showcase her new associates, I couldn’t say no. Here’s a little bit of the magic we captured during our quick morning shoot in downtown Halifax.

I was SO excited when I received an email last night to inform me that this gorgeous styled shoot from December was published in May’s issue of Picton Magazine - and we got the COVER!

She even does tutorials for those who need some extra tips in the makeup department (hello, me!) that you can watch here. We snapped a few with her sweet partner, Chris, too!

Kristy & Ryan's Rustic Winery Wedding | Halifax Wedding Photographer

It’s a rainy day here in Halifax, so I want to brighten things up by sharing this warm and sunny wedding from the summer! Kristy and Ryan had their wedding at the lovely Beavercreek Winery, a rustic venue in Lawrencetown with over 21 different kinds of wine. I love the thoughtful details in their day, like the chandelier in the ceremony platform, and the thoughtful bouquet charms for loved ones who were there in spirit. They also had a special ceremony guest (one of my favorite parts of shooting here… the adorable animal photobombs). Scroll through to see more from Kristy and Ryan’s beautiful celebration!
